Twenty-something Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss - excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it.
The classic story of Romeo and Juliet, set in a modern-day city of Verona Beach. The Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, whose children meet and fall in love. They have to hide their love from the world because they know that their parents will not allow them to be together. There are obstacles on the way, like Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, and Romeo's friend Mercutio, and many fights. But although it is set in modern times, it is still the same timeless story of the "star crossed lovers".
When Mercutio is shooting fish at the beach, his gun is heard firing, but there is no flash. See more »
Two households, both alike in dignity. In Fair Verona where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny. Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.

This movie was not only pathetic, but a mockery of theater in general. West Side Story is an adaptation of the original story - and did well in theaters. This however, was nothing more than unoriginal work with special effects and catchy music riffs selling unnecessary bad-taste to suburban white kids with access to mommy and daddy's credit. When this movie came out - the "teen generation" ate it up - and Hollywood cashed in on it's success; regardless of the fact that this feature had no depth, class, or innovation. It was simply the same dialogue and setting of Shakespeare's original, with enough polish on it to get everyone to want to buy a piece. Shakespeare had a beautiful vision - this wasn't it.
